Rivers and Snakes

Jody Carroll

released January 20, 2022

A brand new collection of 12 traditional American Blues and Folk tunes rendered by one of the finest singer/Songwriter/Guitarists around today. This tribute collection was recorded during the initial months of lock down n Jody’s family recording studio in Lafayette Oregon. These tracks represent his uniquely masterful versatility and raw power of interpretation spun within the folk process of tribute and continuance. His usual new bag of originals are set aside here to present his favorite sounds of old where he can stretch out and swim where they take him. As summer rolled on and the world became small, Jody Carroll gives us a look back in time beyond the rivers and snakes.

“A blues artist we now can’t live without….Jody Carroll, whose textured blues and other roots were dark and haunting…..If there is one artist who embodies roots music to it’s fullest, it has to be Jody Carroll”

No Depression, Amos Perrine

“You have to wonder if he didn’t strike the same deal as delta shaman Robert Johnson..”
